In the mitochondrial ATP synthase (mtATPase) of the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae, the stoichiometry of subunits d, oligomycin-sensitivity conferring protein (OSCP), and b is poorly defined. We have investigated the stoichiometry of these subunits by the application of hexahistidine affinity purification technology. We have previously demonstrated that intact mtATPase complexes incorporating a Hex6-tagged subunit can be isolated via Ni2+-nitrilotriacetic acid affinity chromatography (Bateson, M., Devenish, R. J., Nagley, P., and Prescott, M. (1996) Anal. Biochem. 238, 14-18). Strains were constructed in which Hex6-tagged versions of subunits d, OSCP, and b were coexpressed with the corresponding wild-type subunit. This coexpression resulted in a mixed population of mtATPase complexes containing untagged wild-type and Hex6-tagged subunits. The stoichiometry of each subunit was then assessed by determining whether or not the untagged wild-type subunit could be recovered from Ni2+-nitrilotriacetic acid purifications as an integral component of those complexes absorbed by virtue of the Hex6-tagged subunit. As only the Hex6-tagged subunit was recovered from such purifications, we demonstrate that the stoichiometry of subunits d, OSCP, and b in yeast is 1 in each case.
